Waterproofing for Swimming Pool : Step by Step Process
Swimming pool leaks are frustrating – and addressing them is often expensive, time-consuming, and sometimes requires removing tile and adhesives. Here are some step by step process for waterproofing;
- CAST CONCRETE
Cast your concrete with either crystalline waterproofing admixtures or non-crystalline waterproofing admixture. Admixtures are permanently active and can seal a crack.
This ensures your concrete is protected from the ingress of water.
- SURFACE PREPARATION
The first thing you would do is prepare the substrate. Meaning remove any loose crumbly substrate, make sure the substrate is clean, dry, free of any previous applied products, and foreign matter.
- HOLES OR DAMAGED CONCRETE
Holes will appear whether big or small also in the case of damaged concrete, the areas should be cleaned and damped. Fill holes and repair the damaged concrete.
For construction joints and movement joints, it is important that you use water stops; for sealing of these joints. The swell able water stops expands when it comes in contact with water.
- WATER PROOFING
You can waterproof your swimming pools you need flexible waterproofing membrane that can continuously withstand extreme hydrostatic pressure. Armorcoat should be applied after plastering/ before placing of tiles.
The walls and floor of the swimming pool has to be fixed with tile adhesives that is fast setting, has high adhesive, tensile strength and has impressive waterproofing properties.
